Two Photos of Yellow-Rumped Warblers

During my trip over the weekend to Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison, Connecticut, I walked out to Willard’s Island.  There weren’t many people out, so I slowly walked around the perimeter of the island and ran into a flock of Yellow-Rumped Warblers darting in and out of the trees .  If you are wondering why they are called “Yellow-Rumped”, I think the second photo will help explain it.

I was hoping to find an owl or two up in some of the evergreens on the island, but didn’t see any (although I probably walked past a dozen without realizing it).  I did photograph a raptor flying way overhead which I’m still trying to identify and will post on later.
